The Airbnb revolution is increasing landlords’ yields, giving property owners in Brighton and Hove good cause to consider seriously the advantages of short-term lets.

Short-term letting offers a perfect way to maximise your Brighton and Hove property’s income, without tying you in to any long-term commitments.

It offers the flexibility that many local landlords need.

There’s much more that’s attractive about short-term lets, however, than just flexibility. They also ensure you command a much higher rental return on your property.

At Khalil’s we are seeing gorgeous seaside pads rented out for over £3,000 a month – and typical rents for all local short-term lets are consistently 30 to 50 per cent higher than standard rents.

And the short-term let market just keeps on growing, with the ever-popular location of Brighton and Hove offering the ideal place to be capitalising on this.

The latest visitor figures see tourists to the city reaching beyond the 11 million mark each year – and many of these opt to stay a few nights.

Increasingly, they are choosing to stay in private properties where they can experience a more personal and comfortable experience than the stuffy formality of a serviced apartment or hotel.

The demand for short-lets goes beyond tourists: the city’s buoyant tech sector is bringing in corporate tenants who are relocating, a high number of contract workers and many local homeowners are looking for alternative accommodation while work is being done on their property.
